Champagne hangovers are the worst.

@spezia:  Yes they are! Make sure you eat something with fat and salt (perfect excuse for french fries) and drink lots of water. You will feel better in the morning!

The other think which works for me is to run– it clears out my GI track (I encoruage treadmills or running on a path where you know where evey porta potty is) and helps me sweat out a headache. I just got back and have returned to bed for another hour.

@spezia:  I find apples help my hangovers – no idea why but they seem to help.  French Fries are also great.

I don’t drink any type of sparkling wine for this reason – it doesn’t agree with me at all…

@spezia:  Probably a little late in the game, but the following work for me: PediaLyte and Vitamin B. PediaLyte basically restores your electrolytes the way Gatorade does, but minus the sugar. Vitamin B replenishes what gives you energy. Also, you probably do not want to, but make sure to eat something greasy/filling. I have found that a lot of my hangovers weren’t going away b/c my stomach was empty, and it was allowing the hangover to linger.

I know this sounds nuts, but chicken & dumplins…second on the pedialyte, or if you aren’t worried about sugar then powerade/gatorade

@spezia:  I’ve never had a champagne hangover before but I had a wine one once. Never again… I couldn’t move off the couch until it was time for bed. I unfortunately don’t have any tips at all because none of my usual go to’s (greasy food and gatorade) helped. I will never have that much wine in one night again. Hope you feel better soon!

@spezia:  I disagree. Pinnacle vodka is the worst. I was dying in bed for three whole days and felt sick for a week. Never drinking that again!

@spezia:  Right, it’s not Champagne, or even methode Champenoise sparkling wines that cause those horrible hangovers, it’s the lower-grade bubblies that involve adding lots of sulphur and other stabilizing agents. Also, really cheap bubbly is sometimes carbonated (rather than undergoing a natural secondary fermentation), and that can add to the hangover pain.

Real Champagne, from the Champagne region of France, rarely results in one of those awful hangovers.

Best remedy for what you’ve got is to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!! Flush those toxins out . .

for me, drinking gatorade, taking a paracetamol and sleep are the only ways to get rid of a hangover. and a piping hot shower

i miss drinking (34 weeks pregnant) but i dont miss the hangovers!!!

could always go the bloody mary/michelada route!

A run and a huge glass of V8 is what works for me. My family and I drink tons of champagne on all holidays so I have learned how to deal with the next day headache.
